another nail in the so called top tier of British speedway, arguably one if not the best away supported teams in the league.

Until it happens, i'll take Poole dropping down with a pinch of salt. It could well be a way for Ford to try and get what he wants. Either to force the sale the club or change race nights. 

How do we know if the poll result to drop down is genuine. It night be made up to ad weight to Ford saying he's dropping down, making some think it's serious enough to act.

I hope Buster don't buy them, it will affect Lynn again no doubt.. If he wants to move down then let him do it I say.

Yes well that is what I thought, all this fan poll stuff is clearly rubbish.

Well he could just say he was dropping down anyway, no need to make up a story.

I must admit I thought in might be a good idea to drop down more teams more meetings I am not sure that is correct .I am a little disappointed about the whole thing to be honest

There was a poll on Bournemouth Echo website clearly indicating favour of dropping down a league

Where? The only one I can see is one asking if people would watch Poole in the Championship. That is not an indication of whether or not they prefer it.

If this was the only poll, the fans have been stitched up by a loaded question that doesn't let them give an opinion on which they prefer.

Ford isn't stupid. It's worded in a way that fools the BSPA into thinking it's serious... and in a way it can be got out of.

When you've cried wolf previously... you need to be ever more inventive.

Sometimes you have to reconsolidate and take a hit to come back stronger. Perhaps the glory days of the top riders coming back will return, perhaps not. As long as the sport survives I'm happy. 

Shame Ford hasn't take that attitude during his reign.

Poole want the one thing Buster can't give. Weds nights. They did more than just poll results. You had to put into writing what you wanted. The echo poll came at a similar time to when it was announced we would be applying to drop down.
